Folks who take offence to my hard-hitting and no holds barred blogging tactics usually insinuate that I am an angry and frustrated individual.Well,they make that comment usually when they reckon the saying will get under my skin, but you know what? Those individuals are abso-*ucking-lutely spot on. It is what it is. I am DEFINITELY an angry and frustrated man but hey, have you considered why I am this angry and so frustrated to the extent that I have thrown all caution to the wind and decided to take the bull by the horn?
Well, for a start I am angry that we have Morons,Thugs,and Educated Idiots at the helm of affairs in my country.

Oh Lord Almighty, Abasi, Chineke, Oluwa, I could go on and on and on but then we will be here all day and I would still have to go and hustle for some Naira to purchase fuel to run my generator.
Oh yes! I am angry and frustrated and you should be too if you love and value your country. We certainly could do a whole lot better.
